Laurel Glen, Counterpoint, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014, Sonoma, California, USA
Sommelier Wine Awards 2019 Commended
" While waiting for Laurel Glen's estate Cab to be released in early 2019, enjoy this second-tier wine for its spiced dark fruit character and properly earthy, leathery complexity. Solid effort for a second label."
90/100 points Decanter Magazine
"Blended with 10% Merlot, this wine sources grapes both from its famous estate, as well as from nearby Pickberry and Murray vineyards. It delights in luxuriously bright acidity and a jammy explosion of blackberry, chocolate, clove and tobacco, the texture roundly approachable."
93/ 100 points Wine Enthusiast
"Rich aromatics of coffee, chocolate, iron flake and black fruits. On the palate, notes of fresh blackberry appear as well. Firm, tannins well balanced by mouth-watering acidity for a good balance of plenty of flavour concentration as well as length."
16/20 points Jancis Robinson
